7:04 pm
. she will be campaigning when rick perry will make his first appearance. for bachmann it is a big deal and question to ron paul's candidacy. he was only 200 votes away from taking this and the texas congressman can be claiming to be a contender for the iowa caucus. when you look back, in the last three or five cycles. who ever came in first or second has been the winner of the iowa caucus. bachmann and ron paul have history on their side. for tim pawlenty who came in a distant third with less than half of the votes, now comes serious crunch time and reassessment time. his aids said if he didn't make the top three, they would have to look at down sizing the campaign. mr. pawlenty put out a statement saying they were pleased they were able to get
7:05 pm
third but recognize a tremendous amount of work to get down. he was down two percent in the polls and now claim he was a contender in the straw poll. one thing we are told that is not officially tabulated. perry may have had 700 write in-votes and that puts him ahead of massachusetts former governor mitt romney. romney made the decision not to politic for the traw poll. it is a sign that romney and perry may be in a two-man race in the national level because of the mon yebuzz that perry is sure to get soon. iowa straw poll, first time ever they had write ins and far exceeded their expectations of turn out and a measure of turn out and enthusiasm to have someone to oust president obama and unite

the republican party. the iowa caucus will intensify and five or six months before the caucus and a yore and half away. but when the first voters speak in 2012 as they have today, the republican party is getting geared up more than ever for a very, very tough battle, one that michelle bachmann claims that she can take the lead on. >> getting back to ron paul. he came in second and his vote count was close . talk about what his campaign may be doing . seeing him in the recent debate changed their vote one way or the other. people just really wouldn't leave his tent today. what is being said about ron paul today. the loyalty of ron paul voters is acknowledged by his rivals to be the deepest. he his the capacit tow bring
7:07 pm
them out to straw polls. he's won a string of them this year. bachmann's victory over him is achievement and grass root and lib tarian politics on foreign policy doesn't always go over so well with republicans. they believe that he's almost isolationist policy doesn't fit with the gop strong on foreign policy views. ron paul comes out empowered and always a strong candidate and iconic in republican/libitarian politics it is awn said three tickets out of iowa. tim pawlenty and his campaign breathing a sigh of relief. they may be in steerage but got a ticket to continue to compete in iowa. >> harris: michelle bachmann we saw her tour bus getting
7:08 pm
ready to pull out. i know she may say something to the microphone at this point? >>reporter: she is an ark gressive campaigner and setting a new pace for the candidates. we had the debate and the ames state fair in demoney . she's been packing her calendar with town hall meetings and doing a tremendous amount of covering miles in iowa. she's got a very, very tight campaign style in which she makes remarks and draws huge crowd and stays on a tight schedule and does it over and over again. tomorrow she will be in waterloo, iowa and have to prepare for the entrance of rick perry in iowa and that changes things considerably. perry has a lot to prove. heaited quite late and the field is established and organized for today's festivities .

7:10 pm
>> perry who has served three terps since taking the governor's office after the departure of president bush. he can raise campaign cash quickly which he may need to do to catch up with the contenders. johnathon why is governor perry throwing his hat in the ring at this point? >>reporter: the most important thing about the campaign is job creation. he touted his record in texas that saw the creation of 900,000 new jobs in the past 10 years and governor perry said that could translate nationally if elected. >> i am a texan and proud of it. but first and foremost, i am an incredibly proud american.

washington d.c. is broken. >> and now governor perry wants to go to washington to fix it, harris. >> harris: the governor getting criticism about not being in iowa and snagging the spotlight away from the signature and traditional event. does his not being in iowa hurt the governor? >>reporter: look at the results just in and governor perry comes in sixth with over three and half percent of the vote and that was as a write in candidate but over the long term perry runs the risk of alienating future caucus voters in iowa. he is making campaign stops in iowa and new hampshire where he is write now. he is trying to shore up strong support in south carolina which is the first primary state in the south and being the only show this town in conservative activist and
